Site Visit: Vallourec’s PT Citra Tubindo, Batam Indonesia

11 Oct 2017 – Vallourec is a world leader specialised in premium tubular solutions. It was established in 1989 through PT Citra Tubindo (PTCT) in Batam, Indonesia. In less than 30 years, PTCT has grown from a local company into a world class company of Vallourec throughout Asia Pacific and beyond.

Strategically located at the Kabil Integrated Industrial Estate, on the island of Batam, Indonesia, PTCT is a key player in Asia Pacific, manufacturing a wide range of pipes, connections and accessories, and delivering a wide scope of services for the Oil & Gas industry.

At this site visit, members of the French Chamber’s Energy & Infrastructure committee were given a plant tour with a special focus on lead time reduction: lean manufacturing initiatives on production flows and strategic stocks, innovation: product and processes.
